The Chicago Fire are officially moving back to Soldier Field beginning with the 2020 season after playing in Bridgeview at SeatGeek Stadium since 2006. The move comes at a critical time for the franchise as they look to get back to winning ways after years of disappointment.
On Wednesday, to help celebrate the return to historic Solider Field the Fire revealed their 2020 primary kit dubbed “Homecoming” which they will wear at home this year.
The home kit features a red collar on a navy base that shows the rising of the Fire through the thin, red pinstripes that run throughout the jersey. The Chicago-based mobile communications company and official jersey partner of the Club, Motorola, continues on in 2020 as their logo is prominently featured on the front of the jersey. Additionally, the jersey features a new font as the official MLS name and number jersey font for 2020 is a dynamic, energetic and bold graphic typeface that introduces a layering tri-line effect. The entire Homecoming Kit will feature the navy jersey, navy shorts and red socks.
